kaedemaru akaushi cow

KAEDEMARU

Kaedemaru has one of the most interesting stories you'll ever hear. She was the live calf of Dai 3 Namiaki Ni, who was imported from Japan, and sired by Dai 10 Mitsumaru. She is the only living animal from the group of Akaushi that went to Canada in the 90's. Kaedemaru was purchased by Bill Fisher and brought to TX because of her outstanding phenotype and rare pedigree. Dai 10 Eihou and Dai 3 Namiaki are what represents her maternal outcross lineages. Kaedemaru is still alive to this day!

AKIKO AND FUYUKO

The Akiko and Fuyuko lines have as much name recognition as any in modern day Akaushi cattle. Akiko was said to be one of the stoutest Akaushi females alive. Her Shigemaru daughters are maternal legends due to their proven cow power. Fuyuko was one of the best looking, well-built females in her day. Her Big Al daughters have left their mark on Akaushi history. Both cows lived to be 20+ years of age.

UME AND HARUKO

Ume and Haruko are two females that can't be found in many pedigrees but are very prominent in quality. They represent such a small percentage of the Akaushi cattle in the western hemisphere...but when you find one of their offspring you can count on a few things: (1) they will have many years of production in their tenure, (2) they will be top of the herd in terms of offspring quality, and (3) you can't take your eyes off of them!

504e and ringo akaushi cows

504E and Ringo 117

It doesn't get any harder to find than these two! 504E is the one referred to as the "Elephant Cow". She is the natural calf of Ume born in 1995. She got her name due to her impressive body mass and large feet. Ringo 117 is the natural calf of the famous cow Dai 8 Marunami and was born in Japan in 1994. Finding daughters and granddaughters of these two gems didn't happen overnight!
